William Wenton and the Secret Portal

By Bobbie Peers

The second book in the gripping fantasy-adventure series, packed with code-breaking, cyber-technology and a boy hero with a supernatural destiny.

Full of magical code-breaking skills, non-stop action and a tech-savvy hero, this action-packed sequel is perfect for fans of Percy Jackson, Doctor Who and Alex Rider. Twelve year-old genius William Wenton is still getting used to his extraordinary talent for cracking codes, but when an ancient artefact mysteriously disappears from the Depository for Impossible Archaeology, William must gear up for his most dangerous adventure yet – against an enemy hell-bent on unleashing an ancient portal of untold power. From Norway, to England and then to the dizzying heights of the Himalayas, this race-against-time adventure will push this young hero’s skills to the limit.

  • The second adventure in the irresistibly cinematic and addictive series by a celebrated Norwegian film-writer and maker.
  • The series has sold to 36 territories around the world. Film rights sold to Oscar nominated film director Morten Tyldem (of The Imitation Game) and his production company Norse Code.
  • Praise for book one: "William Wenton cracks the code for great adventure. Mystery, action, a great hero and fantastic robots – what more could you ask for?" Shane Hegarty, author of Darkmouth
